ABOUT THE EVENT

Have you noticed people in your life who are struggling with their wellbeing, but feel unsure of how best to speak with them to support them? 

You don’t need to become a counsellor or psychologist to dispel these feelings of helplessness. However, it is important to understand the principles of holding a safe space with someone who is feeling vulnerable. How can we avoid inflicting psychological harm on the other, and beyond that, how can we communicate in a way that is uplifting and encouraging?

In this 3-hour hands-on workshop, learn key evidence-based approaches to hold supportive conversations with someone who is struggling*. Gain practical insights from the field of Positive Psychology on communication and coping, and learn skills that you can immediately apply in your daily life.

This workshop is suitable for anyone who wants to support the people in their lives, especially parents, leaders, friends, human resource managers, and those in

people-oriented professions.

 

* Please note that techniques from this workshop are meant for non-clinical situations only.

In this session, you will: 

  1. Understand the basis of a supportive conversation

  2. Learn positive and supportive communication techniques

  3. Practice applying your personal style of supportive conversation
